Helping Kids Through Transition

Some children have a difficult time with transitions like back to school or going between Mommy's house and Daddy's house. This is normal for children who like structure and routine and are afraid of uncertainty.

If you are going on a business trip, sending your child to their other parent's house or sending them off for their first day of school after a break, draw a little heart on their hand to remind them that you love them and are always thinking of them!
